The current trajectory of the human enterprise on Earth is one of complete and utter societal collapse and ruin for billions of people if the great shift in planetary consciousness and human maturity fails to materialize. All of the world's monothestic religions- Judaism, Christianity and Islam- contain revelational reference to end time doomsday scenarios of great death, destruction and judgement at the end of time. Although much time and dispensational leeway has been given for mankind to evolve into advanced levels of consciousness and civilization- as can be found in texts such as the Urantia Book and others- there comes a time when world events reach a crescendo of progressive evolutionary reckoning and inevitability. Such is the current stage through which humanity is transiting through today in the early 21st century of human history. Hence, the eschaton.
As Jared Diamond, author of his widely acclaimed book, "Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed", so duly noted: "Our society is presently on a non-sustainable course. Because we are rapidly advancing along this non-sustainable course, the world's environmental problems will get resolved, in one way or another, within the lifetimes of the children and young adults alive today. The only question is whether they will become resolved in pleasant ways of our own choice, or in unpleasant ways not of our choice, such as with warfare, genocide, starvation, disease epidemics and collapses of societies".
The religion of Islam comprises at least 1.5- 2.0 billion adherents worldwide. In the Holy Koran is found the final scriptural revelation of a trinitarian doctrine of supreme revelation, salvation and judgement upon the affairs of mankind. As such, Islam is the quinessential 'key' doctrine which will define the future evolutionary trajectory of the human species. The critical variable here is time. We are OUT OF TIME. Human evolution will either advance and mature or it will devolve and ultimately destroy itself. These are the two paths before us. Simply put, Islam will either save or destroy the human enterprise. The choice is ours. Islam is the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. It will bring planetary salvation or it will bring the sword of planetary judgement. In essence, though, the Holy Spirit (the words and works of which are found in the Holy Koran) is the greater arbiter of human and celestial affairs. If the Final Covenant is accepted and embraced, we will have achieved evolutionary maturity as a species. If rejected, it can only bring about great ruin, destruction and ultimately, extinction for the human race in the fullness of time. Even though we have already lost 50% of all precious life on Earth, there is still 50% left that's worth saving and preserving.
Let us always remember that GOD is merciful to HIS creatures and wishes us only to grow, experience, progress and evolve to perfection within an infinite universe of diversity, magnificence and evolutionary potential. Like it or not, it is the religion of Islam, and the perfection of the one true faith thereof, that will ultimately determine our future human destiny on Earth. Scripture and religion aside, there are a few aspects of evolutionary potential that can greatly assist us in our spiritual evolutionary trajectory as a species- the primary principle of which is diet, specifically meat eating. Growing, slaughtering and consuming billions of animals annually must come to a complete and utter end. Meat eating is barbaric and takes away the nutrition, energy and water resources that are necessary to properly feed over 1/2 of humanity today that are literally starving to death. A vegetarian diet based on plants, grains, fruits, nuts and vegtables can easily meet the nutritional requirements for optimal human health. Even more so, a vegetarian lifestyle will help evolve our consciousness out of violence prone personalities and towards a more loving, compassionate, caring and nuturing state of being. This single issue, probably more than any other, can help arrest and turn around our incessant march towards biological and biospheric extinction.
Another important factor in evolving and transforming our individual and collective consciousness as a species has to do with expanding our sense of cosmic awareness. No other picture ever photographed in human history can compare in creating a new paradigm in human consciousness than those pictures taken by the Apollo manned moon missions. The picture of the Earth embedded in space from the moon is probably the greatest cosmic consciousness raising tool we have in overcoming our fractured nationalistic beliefs, our warfighting tendencies and our psychological disdain for the sacredness and preciousness of life on Earth. The "earthrise" picture should be displayed in every house, business and institution on Earth to give us a sense of our special place and purpose in the Universe. We would do well to display it on a future One World Earth Federation flag should we ever acheive such notoriety.
Finially, recognizing that we are in the eschaton of human history, its time to lay the moral, ethical, spiritual, evolutionary and religious cornerstone that will give us a solid foundation from which to pass through the trying times that we are now transiting through as a species. Its time to redesign and rebuild the holy temple in Jerusalem. This can be done in a way that will unify and represent the 3 great monothesitic religions on Earth- Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Roughly 2/3rds of all members of the human family today are subservient to one or more of these 3 great global religious faiths. A newly rebuilt temple in Jerusalem will not only help us meet head-on the end times eschaton which we are rapidly advancing through, but it will, more importantly, provide us an evolutionary platform through which we will at long last be worthy enough to finially meet our Creator. Up and until that great day, let us strive to build a sustainable, intelligent, advanced, well managed planetary civilization by 2050. This is the critical time frame we have to accomplish this task before world environmental crises overtake us. If we are lucky, we may have till 2100 depending on our ability to rapidly transit our civilization onto a green, environmentally sane, sustainable and survivable path of enlightened world order in the coming years and decades.
In summation, the eschaton before us presents the human species with the opportunity to evolve or perish. Events are forcing human consciousness to change direction and evolve us into more compassionate and intelligent beings. Only time will determine how successfully we will be to individually and collectively transcend and survive the coming revolutionary crises', trials and tribulations that are rapidly descending upon the Earth and its civilization at this hour. Let us therfore strive for perfection, even as our Father in heaven IS perfect.
